THE RUNNER'S ALLEY EXPERIENCE

  • A squeaky clean, organized store with a relaxed vibe
  • Friendly staff that won't hover and sniff you out like hungry wolves
  • Employees who dig running and wear everything we sell
  • Tips and insight on proper running technique for newbie and die-hard runners

Runner’s Alley makes running easier.  We all can agree that running can be challenging and difficult at times, but having the right gear and knowledge makes it that much better.  Runner's Alley supplies both: great options for the right gear and the running knowledge possessed there is far superior to any big box store.

One thing great about Runner's Alley is that they help to create a running community. The employees get to know your name and connect with you as an individual while connecting you to the greater running community. Plus Runner's Alley (Jeanine) does so much for the running community (training groups, sponsoring races, putting on races, etc.) as well as for the community at large (supporting the Krempels Center, etc.).

When I moved to Portsmouth after living in Boston for 7+ years, I struggled to find my place in a new town and greatly missed my friends and community in Boston. That all changed after I decided to join the half marathon training group at Runner's Alley. Not only did I achieve a major goal of completing my first half marathon (under 2 hours!), I gained a circle of close friends that have become the foundation of my life in Portsmouth. Runner's Alley introduced me to the vibrant running community on the seacoast and has given me the confidence to keep running - maybe even 26.2 miles next year.

Runner’s Alley is part of the reason why I'm even able to run.  They have taken the time to look at my gait and foot placement, talked to me about my injuries, and have expertly recommended the most comfortable, best fit sneakers I have ever worn.  Had they not taken their time to help me, I probably would not be out on the road.

Runner’s Alley is the linchpin of the running community in our area. They are the glue that holds us together. Their staff is incredibly knowledgeable and friendly, their product selection is carefully chosen, and their training groups are fantastic for beginners and veterans alike. I actually can’t picture my life without them.

Runner's Alley has fostered a community that welcomes any runner -- no matter how fast or slow -- in with open arms. I am grateful for the support and encouragement I've received since walking through the doors at Runner's Alley. With the help of their expert staff and knowledgeable coaches, I was able to accomplish my goals, and even found a lifelong passion!
